Waterproof stickers FAQs
What are waterproof stickers?
Waterproof stickers are repellent and resistant to water damage that may occur as a result of high levels of moisture, rain and outdoor use. They are waterproof because of the material they are made from, the adhesive that keeps them in place and the inks that are used for printing your design. Stickers and labels can only be considered waterproof if they stay in their original form when they are exposed to water for a prolonged amount of time. Vinyl and laminates generally work the best for waterproof labels when paired with an extra permanent adhesive.
Why might you need waterproof stickers?
Waterproof stickers are essential for labels that are required to stand the test of time. You may sell food and beverage products that need to be stored in the fridge. Ingredients labels should remain intact, even in moist environments, to ensure the safety of your product.
Other common uses for waterproof stickers include:
Most stickers will tolerate a small amount of water splashed on them but to ensure your sticker or label doesn't get ruined by a larger amount of water, there are various steps you can take. Any sticker made from vinyl will repel water, the addition of lamination and extra permanent adhesive will keep it pristine under most conditions too.
Are vinyl stickers waterproof?
Generally, vinyl stickers can get wet and remain unaffected, for extra protection choose a laminated vinyl. Also, ensure the adhesive is permanent or extra-permanent so your sticker can take a drenching and stay put, with the printed artwork unaffected.
How do you keep waterproof stickers from peeling?
The bond between the sticker and the surface will largely depend on the type of adhesive used. The stronger the adhesive, the less likely peeling will occur. If the chosen sticker material is resistant to damage from water or mechanical action it's less likely to peel, so opt for a weatherproof vinyl or laminate material. If you intend to stick your waterproof stickers to a low energy surface, use a high-tack, extra permanent adhesive. For any of the adhesives to perform to their best potential the sticker must be adhered to a clean, dry, flat surface.
What is the best adhesive for a waterproof sticker?
The best adhesives for waterproof stickers are permanent or extra-permanent (also called hi-tack). Vinyl labels with removable adhesive also have a degree of resistance to water but are only suited to specialist applications.
